It’s playoff time in the West Coast League with four division series starting Tuesday including a rematch from last season.

The Ridgefield Raptors, South Division first-half season champions, take on the Portland Pickles with Game 1 at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday at Walker Stadium in Portland and Game 2 at 6:35 p.m. Wednesday at Ridgefield Outdoor Athletic Complex.

If necessary, Game 3 will be 6:35 p.m. Thursday at the RORC.

The Raptors swept their playoff series against the Pickles last season before losing to Corvallis in the divisional final.

Neither side is exactly screaming into the postseason. Ridgefield (33-21 overall) is 4-6 in its last 10 games, and Portland (28-26) is 3-7.

The winner will face the winner of the Cowlitz vs. Corvallis series in a one-game divisional championship. The team with the best overall season winning percentage will host.
